Now that Mitt Romney has announced he's running for president, the Republican is going to spend the rest of the month hunkering down to master the issues, pressing the flesh with the unwashed masses and squaring off outside the White House to foist the will of those people at the current occupant.
Ah, hell, screw that: MR is going to be criss-crossing the country and at least one ocean to scoop up campaign cash and various mostly private functions, including at least one in that GOP piggy bank known as Orange County.
The National Journal obtained a list of 33 finance events between now and June 30 the former Massachusetts governor and
venture capitalist has at least tentatively scheduled. The biggest break he'll apparently get is four days before a June 13 debate in New Hampshire. And he'll be off to a July “preview event” in London, according to reporter Jim O'Sullivan.
Sandwiched in between a full day of money stops in Los Angeles on June 22 and a June 24 luncheon in Provo, Utah (gotta respect the elders, yo), there's a June 23 evening reception in Orange County, according to the tentative schedule that offers no clue as to where that blessed event might be. Betcha Romney horn dog Hugh Hewitt knows!
